I don't think I would put it directly on the flagstone. I would get a cheap metal pizza pan to put it on. That's what I do. Or a square or round paver. Seems like it would at least darken the flagstone if not crack it
My neighbour has been complaining about the smoke coming from the chimney when I light up briquettes and start it on the Kettle grates. 

I'd like to move the chimney further away from the house and away from the Kettle.

I generally use the wax starter cubes.

Can I light the chimney on flagstone and just leave it directly on the stone? 

Are there chimney stands available?

Any other suggestions?

Thanks to everyone in advance!

Some of the Dollar Trees have a cheap metal pizza pan for a dollar.  I bought one for an alternative use also.

I also enjoy outdoor Dutch oven cooking and when I was just getting started (and quite broke) for my stand to make my ring of coals, I used two cinder blocks turned on their side. The guy at the hardware store, upon learning what I was doing, warned me “they could end up cracking and breaking” and I said for the buck a piece they cost, I’d risk it. That was 10 years ago. I left that set at the house I was renting and bought another set about 7 years later. I still have that set. So rather than risk your patio, I’d recommend a couple cinder blocks.
